Editor: I am very disappointed with your Clearwater Beacon coverage of the presidential campaigns. Your blatant, lopsided coverage of Obama’s re-election run is beneath the standards of professional journalism. The article published a few weeks ago in your paper in which one of your reporters reiterated what a group of Obama supporters believe was especially irritating. So we are to infer that because the Obama supporters interviewed state Romney is a racist and a women hater, it must be true? Come on! What a pathetic attempt to misrepresent Romney the candidate.
For example, in this article it is said that the Republican platform disallows abortion, period, no exemptions, not even in cases of rape or incest! Are you joking me? Only the truly misinformed or Obama cool aide drinkers believe this. Listen to Mr. Romney, read the platform, note the party’s response to Mr. Akin’s infamous abortion statement. Then issue a well-deserved apology for such an obvious character assassination attempt directed at a party and a candidate whose views actually reflect the values of half the nation.
Come on journalists, start living up to the integrity expected of your profession or find an honest job in the Obama campaign machine.
